TuiuHTCm tho foresight of Surgeon
General Sternberg tho troops which
have gono to Cuba will bo well sup-
plied with quinine so necessary to
health in tropical climates. Tho
United States army said Gen.
Sternberg is equipped' with throo
months' supply of medicines and of
this quinine forms a good share. In
addition to the supply already on tho
ships tho hospital vessel Relief will
take to Santiago 1000000 qulnlno pills
which tho general believes will laat
tho army a reasonable time.

have attached to it skilled physicians

of attendants. They have 25 ambu-

Tun latest scheme for getting over
'tho English channel Is a proposition
for a submerged railway. First sub-
merged track Is to bo laid. Upon this
would bo operated a platform of suffi-

transport an entire train above the
waters of tho channel even in a choppy
sea. This platform would consist of
an upper und lower part. Tho ox-
tremo length of both parts Is 4l)j
feet and the motive power would bo
electricity generated by steam engines
and dyuamos on tho uppor platform.

SiiArTEH Major General
llricf as It was it told tho whole
story that tho first shots of tho long-
expected crash of arms probably the
first great land engagement of the
war was under way. It sent a thrill
through official circles from tho high
est to tho lowest Secretary Algel
was the first to read It Ho passed It
to Gen. Corbln adjutant general ol
tho army and directed him to tnko It
at onco to the white house. Gen. Cor-
bln went to tho president carrying
the original dispatch. He was back
shortly and then a bulletin was posted
giving tho dispatch verbatim. Until
then only tho highest officials hud
known that tho decisive hour was at
hand. The nows spread through the
corridor and a wave of awellko agita-
tion nnd cxpcctnncy took hold of overj
one. A great crowd of correspondents
struggled about tho bulletin board
messenger boys dashed off with dis-
patches tho clerks men and womon
turned from their desks and gathered
at tho doorways. .
Meantime Secretary Alger remained
at his desk whllo the usual train of
callers pushed tholr way forward. The
secretary preserved his usual outward
calm but those near him said the news
from tho field had sent tho same thrill
to the secretary that prevailed every-
where and even more for there
was the personal consideration
that tho secretary's son young Capt
Algor now on tho staff of Gen. Duf-
field was participating in the engage-
ment now on. As the secretary
started to the cablnot meeting he
spoke with satisfaction of the fact that
sufficient tlmo had elapsed to permit
Gen. Shatter to got his army well con-
centrated at tho front and thrown out
into good battle formation. Tho sec-
retary felt that our forces wero on the
aggressive and that tho mere fact that
tho action was now going on showed
that Shatter had bided his time and
was ready to strike his blow. Word
had come prior to tho Shatter dis-
patch showing that tho artillery
which had been brought to the front
was woll placed.
A dispatch was received from Col.
Allen In charge of tho signal stutlon
nt l'laya del Estc. He said what the

ing Americans and Admiral Sampson's

soldiers including all the regulat
troops now operating In Cuba and
three volunteer regiments supported
by 4000 Cubans under Gen. Garcia lie
to-night within view of the Spauish
lntrenchments north nnd east ol
Santiago do Cuba ready for a forward
movement in the morning which may
lead Immediately to a general assault
unon the city. Tho advanco will bo
made by Gou. Lawton's division form-
ing tho right wing nnd if the
Spaniards show signs of retreating
or circumstances otherwise warrant
Gen. Wheeler's division and Gen.
Kent's division doubtless will join in
the advance and eudeavor to drlvo the
Spaniards befuro them and enter the
city. While tho movement may not
reach this extent to-morrow Us pur-
pose Is to forco tho 5000 men of Gen.
Lawton's command two rallos further
forward than they are now take the
little village of Canoy and occupy the
ridgo overlooking tho city and harbor
from which our artillery flro can be
rained upon tho Spanish lntrench-
ments in front of tho city and upon
the large body of Spanish soldiers
It may be that the Americans ma;
bo satisfied to accomplish a movement
in ono day and then postpone a fur
ther advanco until the light artillery
and siege guns can be placed In posi-
tion on the ridgo and preparations can
be made to pour n deadly flro of shell
and shrapnel into the lntrenchments
dislodging the onemy nnd enabling
the main body of the American xorccs
to carry the city by storm. It Is bo-
lleved that at tho same time Gen Law-
ton advances Gen. Kent's division on
the left will attack Aguadores on the
coast four miles east of Moro castle
wh'ch would give our army a base
much nearer Santiago than tho pres-
ent ono at Juragua.
Until to-day our men at the front
have been subsisting on halt rations
but owing to the excellent work of
CoL John F. Weston chief of the com-
mlssiry department supplies have
been sent to the front by pack trains
with great dispatch all day and night
and our soldiers aro no longer in want
of food. Though they have been
drenched with rain for several days
and have been suffering from lack of
sufficient food the spirit of our sol-
diers is alt that could be desired
and they wo eager tor the general
attack upon the enemy's stronghold.

A NAVAL HERO'S STORY.
From the Times-Herald Chicago 111.
Late in 1861 when President Lincoln is-
sued a call for volunteers L. J. Clark of
Warren Trumbull Co. Ohio was among
the first to respond. He joined the mortar
fleet of Admiral Porter just before the
memorable operations on the Mississippi
Hiver began. It was at the terrific bombard-
ment of the Vicksburg forts that the hero of
this story fell with a shattered arm from a
charge of schrapnel.
After painful months In the hospital he
recovered sufficiently to be sent to his home
at Warren Ohio. Another call for troops
fired his patriotic zeal and Clark soon en-
listed in Company H of the 7th Ohio Vol-
unteers. In the army of the Potomac he
was in many engagements. Being wounded
in a skirmish near Richmond he was sent to
the hospital and thence home.

failed to restore his lost strength and vigor.
"A friend gave me a box of Dr. Williams

a half dozen boxes and took them. I soon

Life and the Liver.
"Success in life depends upon the liver"
is the way Chas. Lamb the poet and punster
put it. Medical science has proven that
nine-tenths of the ailments of living have
their origin in the liver and in constipation
caused by its derangements. Keep the liver
lively and all will be well. Modern science
points out Cascarets as the only perfect
jjentle positive liver regulator fit to be used
in the delicate human organism. All drug-
gists sell Cascarets 10c 25c SOc and we rec-
ommend them most heartily.
